Author and Chef Zane Hacker returns for regional tour

31 August 2015

Readers and food lovers are invited to join Western Downs Libraries for a cooking adventure in the Antarctic when author and Chef Zane Hacker returns to the region in September following the success of his previous meet and greet in June.

Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development and Health Services Councillor Carolyn Tillman said adventure seekers and food enthusiasts will be inspired by Zane’s remarkable 14-month stay at one of the coldest and remotest places on earth, Antarctica.

“Antarctic Sundays is an extraordinary tale of Zane’s experiences living and working at Mawson Station, the longest continuously operated station in Antarctica,” she said.

“His book unites a love of exploration, food, and photography and combines pictures with recipes and stories to create a truly wonderful visual tale.

“It’s always a joy to meet an author in person, and Zane’s list of credits and unique learning experiences including as a chef at the Whitsunday Islands, boat handler, navigator, explorer and “theatre nurse”, make for an interesting session of tales and wonder.”

Zane Hacker will be touring the region as follows:

  • Tuesday 1 September, 9.30am at Moonie Library
  • Tuesday 1 September, 6pm at Meandarra Library
  • Wednesday 2 September, 10am at Wandoan Library
  • Thursday 3 September, 10am at Jandowae Library
  • Thursday 3 September, 5.30pm at Chinchilla Library
  • Friday 4 September, 10am at Bell Library
